Your Dental Implant Procedure
An overall health evaluation is necessary prior to dental implant treatment. Your gum and bone tissue must be adequate and healthy enough to support the procedure. If necessary, a bone graft or sinus augmentation can support your treatment.
Anesthesia is provided to keep you comfortable during the placement process. Your implant is placed within your jawbone, a temporary dental restoration is provided to allow for function during healing, and you’re given specific post-op care instructions to guide your healing process.
Healing and recovery period
It’s essential that you allow your implant site to heal. Recovery can last from three to six months on average as your dental implant adapts to your gum and bone tissue.
Permanent restoration process
Your permanent tooth will be secured to your implant following the necessary healing period. The dental crown will be secured to the surface post to fully restore your tooth function.
